Truly horrifying. Maybe we should start thinking about making prison guards wear cameras so we can make sure they're actually monitoring prisoners and
not encouraging pit fighting or looking the other way in order to punish a prisoner.
I would guess the reason these prisons do not have video cameras covering every square inch with recorders catching every moment for review is solely
for that reason, so that a little more punishment can be meted out to whom ever the institution chooses and blame can be put upon another as may be
The punishment is having one's liberties removed and being detained and taken out of society. Anything more that happens to a prisoner in custody is
negligence on the part of their custodians or downright torture being applied or allowing it to be applied.
I don't agree with having a prison system except in rare instances of containing the violently uncontrollable insane. Whatever other "punishable"
offenses are just normal societal aberrations and should be accepted behaviors and confined to sequestered communities where grievious "offenses"
already occur in large number. I have no problem with thieves living among thieves, drunk drivers carousing inebriated and clashing with other
intoxicated drivers, even murderers living among other murderers. That would be libertarian justice.
Lesser behavioral deviations could co-exist together as preferred lifestyles as states and counties that permit gambling, prostitution, substance
consumption. We should consider also opening to alternative medical procedures permitted beyond what our traditional unionized allopathic medicine
currently promotes and permits. The inverse could also be permitted as in a community ban on public alcohol consumption but permitting other
substances that may be deemed less harmful or violence-provoking, smoking vs. non-smoking towns, and religious havens and spiritual retreat
I see no reason we should force-fit a one-size-fits-all societal morality code and punish violators. We should accommodate different views of freedom
if we desire to have a truly elevated society.
